Deathiversaries: Love, Loss & Legacy

Deathiversaries: Love, Loss & Legacy
The anniversary of our loved ones death is an emotionally charged day. One that insists on being seen. Heard. Recognized. Let's hold space together for our deathiversary stories, rituals & practices.

"I hear you. I see you. I miss you."

How do we transform this missive into action on our loved ones deathiversary?

Join grief and loss specialist and co-author of "Graceful Woman Warrior: A Story Of Mindfully Living In The Face Of Dying," Laurie O'Neil, and her 11-year-old niece and co-author, Marisa da Silva, as they invite you into their journey to honor, love, and memorialize the legacy of Marisa's late mother, Terri Luanna. From storytelling, letters to heaven, and singing/songwriting, to NYC trips, family gatherings, and book launches, Laurie and Marisa look forward to walking hand in hand with you through our loved ones deathiversaries.

Special performances by Terri Luanna' aunt, singer/songwriter, Dori Rubbicco, and her daughter, Marisa.

Bring your stories. Bring your rituals. Bring your memories. And become part of our shared story as we explore the healing power of remembrance and meaning making...
